Choosing Bones for your Dog

Bones Icon copy.png
Soft, raw edible bones are an important part of a balanced diet. Bones should make up around 12% of the diet. Although bones provide essential nutrients, they also are great for your dogs dental health & mental stimulation which is why we sell our bones whole. When it comes to feeding raw bones to dogs, it's important to choose the right type of bones to ensure your dog's safety and health.

Here are some general guidelines to follow:

 
  1. Raw, meaty bones are best. These are bones that still have meat attached to them, such as chicken wings, chicken frames, or brisket bones. The meat provides nutrition, and the bones help keep your dog's teeth clean.

  2. Avoid weight-bearing bones. These are the larger bones that support the animal's weight, such as leg bones or knuckles. They can be too hard for your dog's teeth and may cause dental damage.

  3. Choose appropriately sized bones. Bones should be large enough that your dog can't swallow them whole, but small enough that they can still chew on them comfortably. 

  4. Supervise your dog when giving them bones. Always monitor your dog while they're chewing on bones to make sure they're not breaking off small pieces or trying to swallow the bone whole. Bones have very high value for dogs so for multi-dog households, ensure your dogs have plenty of room or are completely separated while eating bones.

  5. Talk to your veterinarian. If your dog has health issues that make them unsuitable for raw bones e.g. poor teeth/old age, consult with your veterinarian before introducing bones to your dog's diet.
